TRICON2018 – 2nd Tricontinental Meeting on Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine @ Elangeni Hotel
Sep 23 – Sep 29 all-day

After a very successful first edition in 2013 on Reunion Island, our next Tricontinental Scientific Conference (TRICON2018) will take place in the coastal city of Durban, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.

We are once again organising a full week of scientific days interspersed with diving workshops and social events. The academic programme will include presentations, workshops, discussion sessions,  and special topic conferences. Our social calendar encompasses a welcome coctail party, a gala dinner and the ever popular post-conference happy hour. There will be opportunities to dive the nearby Aliwal Shoal, visit wildlife game parks, take in a local rugby match and explore Zulu culture.

A Joint Organising Committee from EUBS, SPUMS, SAUHMA and the Scott Haldane Foundation will work together with local Durban Hyperbaric Centre staff and a South Africa Event Management Bureau to make sure everything runs smoothly !

The combination of easy access, nice weather, friendly people, rich culture, nature at its most spectacular and affordable prices makes this an opportunity not to be missed. The weather in September is ideal with temperatures in the mid 20s for both land and sea and little chance of rain.  Why not plan an extra week before or after the conference to travel the area and experience more of South Africa’s amazing diversity, hospitality and wildlife. Bring your family too – there are a lot of child-friendly activities nearby !

International Symposium on Naval Medicine @ Hall of Ataturk War Games Centre and Cultural Site
Oct 22 – Oct 26 all-day


The International Symposium on Naval Medicine 2018 will be held on October 22-26, 2018, in Istanbul; by Turkish Navy, Naval Medical Training and Research Center (DETAM), under the auspices of Turkish Naval Forces Command on the occasion of decennial of DETAM.

The first International Symposium on Naval Medicine in Turkey took place in October 2005, which ended up with the establishment of Turkish Navy, Naval Medical Training and Research Center. It is understood that today’s naval medicine has become a multidisciplinary field that has to be well organized in order to be highly efficient to meet the operational needs. Turkish Navy, having a history of hundreds of years, does realize the importance of Naval Medicine and has now a policy to take further steps to augment the extend and the capabilities of DETAM.

Professionals in naval medicine, all over the world, are dealing with highly specific issues within special environments and populations; from preventive medicine to man-machine interactions, from medical support to special operations to researches on the issues of diving and submarine medicine. The Turkish Navy believes that bringing experts in naval medicine all over the world together will contribute to see the whole and the real picture of naval medicine and this will enable everybody to see the opportunities of collaboration and to find a perfect scientific platform of sharing information.

Registration is planned to be free of charge. The Symposium Secretariat will not be able to register more than the capacity of the auditorium. It is strictly recommended that all colleagues intending to register, keep in mind the limitation and register on time.
Deadline for registration is September 14, 2018.
